"The Expansion of High School Choice in Chicago Public Schools"

Public high school choice in Chicago expanded dramatically between 2002 and 2016, both in terms of the number of public high school options and the share of students choosing to attend a school other than their neighborhood high school. We investigate trends in high school student enrollment and public high school options for ninth graders in Chicago Public Schools (CPS) over this period and document how changes in enrollment patterns have changed the demographic make-up of schools by type, sorting of students across schools, and even the distance students are traveling to attend school.

"Evidence Based Medicine: What It Is, How It Works, and Its Limitations"

Dr. Guthmann will discuss the origins of evidence-based medicine in the practice of medicine, the definition of evidence-based medicine, and how it works. The discussion will involve background on how we know what we know and its limitations. He will review what the medical community knows now, might know in the future, and likely will never know, and how we can deal with this gap in knowledge.

"When Preachers Aren’t Believers: The Work of The Clergy Project"

Imagine suddenly being disqualified from your lifelong career and stripped of all academic degrees. Imagine then losing your marriage and family—even being cut off from your entire community. All of this in addition to an identity crisis like none other. Such is the plight of religious leaders who no longer believe in God—lose everything or keep on preaching as if nothing has changed. But The Clergy Project (TCP) offers something more. Join TCP president Drew Bekius as he shares about their important work helping post-faith pastors, priests, nuns, rabbis, monks, and imams in 34 countries around the world.
